receipt now. president obama addressed the united nations general assembly for the first time since he was sworn into office. and the dictators assembled there heard from a very different president than this country has become accustomed to over the past eight months. who seems to have forgotten some of the defining moments of his own presidency. let's take a look. >> like all of you, my responsibility is to act in the interests of my nation and my people. and i will never apologize for defending those interests. sean: he'll never apologize? this from the president who has made an apology an art form? from one world capital to another pointing out america's flaws? let's just roll this tape. >> there have been times where america's shown arrogance. and been dismissive. even derisive. the united states is still working through some of our own darker periods in our history. we've at times been disengaged and at times we've sought to dictate our terms. we have to acknowledge potentially we've made some mistakes. that's how we learn. unfortunately, faced with an uncertain threat, our govern
afternoon, everyone. in anticipation of president obama's historic first visit to the united nations next week, i would like to talk to you about the work we have been doing at the u.n. over the past eight months to advance our interests and make american safer and how the president intends to use his time up in the united nations next week. the united states has dramatically changed the tone, substance, and practice of our diplomacy at the united nations, and our approach to the u.n. as an institution, as well as approach to multilateralism in general. we start from the premise that this change is necessary because we face an extraordinary array of global challenges. things like poorly-guarded nuclear facilities, terrorism by al qaeda and affiliate's, nuclear challenges from iran and north korea, genocide and mass atrocities, cyber attacks on our digital infrastructure, pandemic disease, climate change, international criminal networks and organizations. these transnational security challenges can only be dealt with in cooperation with other nations. they can't by definition be dealt with

at the united nations really laid it out there. this is his policy of engagement. let's watch. >> the time has come for the world to move in a new direction. we must embrace a new era of engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect. and our work must begin now. we know the future will be forged by deeds and not simply words. speeches alone will not solve our problems. it will take persistent action. >> he's saying i came to you in the first nine months. look at what i have done. day one, i did guantanamo. i've taken these steps. now it's up to you, the world leaders, the world community, to step up to the plate. >> right. and the question is, he talked in his inaugural, andrea, as you remember about the unclenched fist that would be -- that would meet other powers. enemies of the united states like iran. well, the question i think nine months in is what does this president have to show for that policy of engagement? that's going to be put to a rather large test when it comes to iran and whether iran is seriously willing to negotiate. something that ahmadinejad says they are not when
state is sentenced to death and killed? we do not know the identity. the united nations has a duty to answer these questions. who has implemented the death sentence? they should have the legal status and responsibility. we should know their responsibility. there should be a doctor. there should be all of the legal procedures in place for a layman, let alone the president of a member state in the united nations. that he should be put to death in such a way. this is the iraqi war point number three. it is the of a great situation. that is a disgrace to mankind. -- is the abu ghraib situation. the united nations should not forget it. the general assembly of the united nations should investigate and look into these matters. the prisoners of war were persecuted there. dogs were used on them. men were made love to. no one has done this before in previous wars. sodomy is unprecedented. in no previous aggressions or with prisoners of wars. there are soldiers that are raped in prisons by members of states of the security council. this is against civilization. this is inhumane. we should kno
? major garrett is at the un. here we are. it is september. he is at the united nations. what has the like -- what has the white house learned leading up to these meetings as they take stock of this nuclear issue? >> that a presidential election changing from what someone regarded as a unilateral president to a multilateral president has not increase the appetite or even low-level inclination of european nations, russia, or china to dramatically confront iran in its pursuit of nuclear weapons through the vehicle of enforceable, practical economic stations. the administration is not giving up but they hope that by this date, as the president indicated, that they would be a lot farther down the road to giving iran a fundamental choice about its future, economically and diplomatically, as they pursue nuclear weapons. so, they have to go back to the drawing board. megyn: if that is the case what is next for this administration? >> next is the p-5 plus one talks, talking about what their choices are. susan rice, the ambassador at the united nations, talk about that story on "fox & friends" this
the united nations, rhetoric cannot change the united nations. the united nations represents governments, not individuals. there obama will run into the same problems that his predecessor countered when it comes to things like the middle east or climate change. >> there were a couple of things going on at this week. there was the public here, where everybody from obama to ahmadinejad, who spoke to a half-empty chamber, too gaddafi -- god knows what he was doing -- but behind the scenes there was a fair amount going on. it is not clear whether we really did get a concession from the russians that they would help on sanctions if necessary, but it is the first indication that we might have actually gotten that. >> progress, jeanne cummings? >> it is just the beginning. we are only starting out. we don't know how obama's relationship with the rest of the world leaders will be called. certainly were not pitching at hisead, which they used to do with bush. that is the change. but if you look at the specifics he was trying to bush, there might have been a little bit of progress on nonproliferat
. it is a strange name. some have expressed their concern and disappointment with the united nations. i believe this is not only a critical, central institution but one which the united states has many equities. i am looking forward -- it has nothing to do with the fact that it is in new york and i get to go home, it is a personal obligation. >> let me begin by saying to deploy a stronger and more comprehensive missile defense system in europe. this came after the assessment of the threat posed by iran. the technology we have today and what might be available in the future to confront us. we believe we are in a position to be stronger. let me be clear about what this new system will do. relative to the system which was many years from being deployed. we will deploy missile defense sooner than the previous program. we will deploy missile defense that is more comprehensive. and with a better capacity to protect all our friends. we will deploy technology that is actually proven so that they do not waste time or taxpayer money. we will reserve the flexibility to our approach. make no mistake, if yo
of engagement with the world. >> president obama's united nations debut. he reaches out to the world, but he's wavering on afghanistan and the medicare board, regulators on an insurer who dares to criticize his health care plan. the journal editorial report starts right now. >> that we have a clear and focused goal to disrupt, dismantle and defeat al-qaeda and pakistan and afghanistan. to achieve our goals, we need a stronger, smarter, and comprehensive strategy, to focus on the greatest threat to our people, america must no longer deny resources to afghanistan because of the war in iraq. >> welcome to the journal editorial report. that was president barack obama back in march, unveiling a new strategy for the war in afghanistan, what a difference six months makes. the administration now appears to be having second thoughts just as his top commander there says he needs more troops to avoid defeat. joining the panel this week, wall street journal columnist and deputy editor. columbiaist anastasia and bret stevens and features editor rob pollock. you predicted that the president would not have
for a new era of engagement in his debut speech before the united nations this week. all right, brett, so what is an era of engagement mean in practical terms? what is he trying to do? >> michael jackson is dead but we are the world lives on. this is the end of the era of american ex steppingsnal -- exceptionalism. >> the old shining city on a hill. the american global leadership has been in force since world war ii. >> the question is who exactly are you engaging with? if we are engaging in allies in europe or allies in asia for common security interest or value by all means that's what the presidents of both parties have done for a long time. how then are you going to engage with a kim jong-il or ahmadinejad or those who want to live outside of these rules of engagement. there's also world of confrontation. he would argue, look, we are going to get new sanctions and be able to organize and be tougher on the iraq or north korea when they don't abide by national rules. if they don't sign up for new treaties if they want to abide by the treaties we will be tough on them. >> that's what he
, benjamin netanyahu, he is in new york attending the united nations general assembly meeting. i spoke to him yesterday at his hotel about his perspective on the middle east. today, he addressed the united nations general assembliment here is some of what he said. >> i sat here today as the prime minister of israel, the jewish state. and i speak to you on behalf of my country and my people. the united nations was founded after the carnage of world war ii, after the horrors of the holocaust. it was charged with preventing the reoccurrence of such on te horrendous events. yesterday the president of iran stood at this very podium, spewing his latest anti-semetic rants. just a few days earlier he again claimed that the holocaust is a lie. i'm proud that my country israel is at the forefront of many of these advances, science and technology and medicine and biology and agriculture and water and energy and the environment. these innovations and my country and many of your countries offer humanity mutual of unimagined promise. but if the most fanaticism can acquire the most deadly weapons, the mar
who have been protesting and demonstrating outside this hall all of this week. will the united nations stand by their side. well, ladies and gentlemen, the jury is still out on the united nations. and recent signs, recent signs are not encouraging. rather than condemning the terrorists and their iranian patrons, some here in the united nations have condemned their victims. this is exactly what a recent u.n. report on gaza did, falsely equating terrorists with those they targeted. for eight long years hamas fired rockets, fired those rockets from gaza on nearby israeli citizen and citizens. thousands of missiles, mortars hurling down from the sky on schools, on homes, shopping centers, bus stops. year after year as these missiles were deliberately fired on our citizens, not a single, not one u.n. resolution was passed condemning those criminal attacks. we heard nothing, absolutely nothing from the u.n. human rights council on this named institution, if there ever was one. in 2005, hoping to advance pe e peace, israel unilaterally withdrew from every inch of gaza. it was very painful. w
out both iran and the united nations as a whole. using the platform, the israeli president blasted allowing mahmoud ahmadinejad to speak yesterday. ahmadinejad denied the holocaust ever happened. eric is live on the east side of manhattan. the prime minister sending a small -- strong challenge, didn't he? >> it really was a direct challenge, and a powerful one. benjamin netanyahu took the same podium that mahmoud ahmadinejad took to deny the holocaust yesterday, and in a dramatic fashion, netanyahu unfolded original plans for a nazi concentration camp, asking, "is this all live? -- is this a lie ?" netanyahu says it is a case of barbarism versus civilization, the ninth century verse is the 21 -- versus the 21st century. >> we will take action against dictators who stole an election in broad daylight and then gunned down iranian protesters who died in the sidewalks on the street, choking on their own blood. we need to stop the terrorist regime of ron from developing atomic questions -- we need to stop the terrorist regime of iran from developing atomic weapons. rick: this is a very
are being spent by the members of the united nations. first, major development in a federal terror organ -- investigation that spreads from new york to colorado. in denver, najibullah zazi and his father went in front of a council this afternoon, discussing notes on how to make a bomb. it appears that zazi may have trained at an al qaeda camp in pakistan. so far, he and his father had only been charged with lying to investigators. at the same time, an imam are arranged in queens on the same charges, of lying -- a queens imam arraigned on charges of lying, also. but his lawyers say that he is innocent and the government has nothing on him. >> i characterize this as a bootstrap case, creat cre by the government to cover up their own failings, and the fact that they were the ones that blew this investigation. rick: today's court appearances may only be the tip of the iceberg. alicia, there were reports that this plot was beyond the planning stage. reportedly zazi texting that the "wedding cake is ready." al qaeda has used that code in the past. >> when al qaeda uses the term wedding, it is
the united nations security council mandate for u.s. troops and other international forces in iraq. this mandate was what is known as a chapter 7 mandate. chapter 7 of the u.n. charter concerns and i'm quoting, action with respect to threats to peace, breaches of the peace, and acts of aggression. in effect, the chapter 7 mandate means that the international community, via the security council, has passed legally binding resolutions regarding a particular country, irrespective of what that country's people or government might wish. now the u.s.-iraq bilateral agreement effectively ended the chapter 7 mandate, regarding international forces in high rack. -- in iraq, and this was welcomed in iraq as an acknowledgement of its sovereignty and national dignity. after all, a chapter 7 mandate essentially says that you are a ward of the international community, but you're not capable or trustworthy enough to run your own country. and for anyone, but especially a people as proud as the iraqi people, this is profoundly insulting. however, a number of other chapter 7 mandates still remain in

that plus the fox all-stars live at the united nations starts right now. good evening. from the united nations he headquarters i'm bret baier. president obama is also in new york here today talking climate change, international relations an middle east peace. and at midday he met with palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas and israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. a short time ago, netanyahu told me what he and president obama discussed concerning iran. >> what is the goal? he said the goal is to make sure that iran does not arm itself with nuclear weapons. i share that goal. the method of achieving it is important but the goal is more important. i think there is a growing awareness certainly in washington and in many of the european capitals that time is running short, that iran is moving forward to arm itself with nuclear weapons and that this would have catastrophic consequences not just to israel. that's obvious, but to the arab states in the middle east, to the world's oil supply, and perhaps the worst is for worldwide terrorism, because iran is the greatest sponsor of

medicine. you have national health insurance which is just like medicare for all. medicare in the united states is not socialized medicine. medicare in the united states is public financing with private provision. >> so could any of these countries that you've been describing be used as a model for the health care system in the united states? >> france represents an interesting model because there is a large private sector. there is a tradition of rugged individualism. at the same time, there's a tradition of social solidarity, so that everyone is covered under a universal health insurance plan and yet the provision is largely an office-based private service practice, something we know well in the united states. in france, they regard our group practices, our hmos as something resembling more socialized types of medicine. but one has to remember that under national health insurance systems, the physicians are fiercely autonomous and fiercely dispute and value their individual relationships with their patients. clinical decisions are not made by the state, neither in britain nor in france

"washington post" had the scope of the week, with bob woodward's story summarizing the views of stanley mcchrystal saying that the u.s. needs more troops in afghanistan to keep the mission from of failing. >> if the president does not come to a decision soon, we will miss the window of getting more troops into the theater as the spring thaw occurs when at more troops will be necessary. >> the leak of the report is seen as a response to the president's perceived reluctance to commit more troops to afghanistan. will this pressure the president to send more troops to afghanistan, charles krauthammer? >> it probably will. i think the reason it got leaked is that the report at delivered to the president on august 30, and the military is upset is because it was an urgent request and was sitting around for a month, and they want an answer, all

saw is quite different from the remarks made by mr. obama at the united nations. he correctly says that we must not move ahead based on speculations, we must not unnecessarily accuse one another. tell me, what was done today, what exactly does that mean? they must not interfere in the activities of the iaea. they must give the iaea enough time to go check things out, prepare its report, and then provide the information to all the relevant bodies and organizations that are involved. it seems to me that what was done was a really big mistake. when the iaea report finally comes out, i am sure it will definitely feel sorry about their move. they will regret it and be regretting it more down the road. in the end of the day it is a very ordinary facility that is been set up. it is only in the beginning stages and we still have one month before that time, that deadline when we inform everyone and it is not a secret facility. if it was, why did we informed the iaea one year ahead of time and we have done a very transparently. >> president barack obama's this action by the group of 20 natio
